Does there exist a GTK equivalent (or improvement) of the Linux archiving tool known as Ark? If so, where might it be found; and if not, how well-received might be a new project which acts as a front-end to tar?

It's called File Roller, or "Archive Manager" in the menu.

Thank you! File Roller is at, for what it's worth. I have found two other front-ends to GNU command-line archiving tools, namely PeaZip and Xarchiver (circa 2009). – dogglebones Jul 21 '12 at 6:00
File Roller requires libgnome, whereas Xarchiver does not. – dogglebones Jul 21 '12 at 6:15
